As Jeremy Renner continues to make the press rounds for his upcoming thriller Kill the Messenger, the actor cleared the air about a certain Captain America 3 rumor and teased new details about Avengers: Age of Ultron. And, despite claiming that he wasn't really interested in a Hawkeye solo movie last week, Renner does confirmed that he is signed on for one should Marvel deem it necessary. He then teases a possible Hawkeye/Black Widow team-up movie.
Most actors who take on a major role in any Marvel movie sign multi-picture deals that will span several years. When asked about his own Marvel contract, Jeremy Renner says the deal includes Marvel's The Avengers, next year's Avengers: Age of Ultron and The Avengers 3, along with a possible Hawkeye spin-off movie:
Having been absent from Marvel’s slate of Phase Two movies, Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye is set to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in May alongside the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the actor has taken a moment to discuss his role in the hotly-anticipated sequel during an interview with Starplus (via Cbm).
“It was fun to finally kind of discover who Clint Barton is a little bit. We have some good secrets revealed. I think everything that was great about the first Avengers, is exponentially expressed in this one. From the action, to the making fun of itself, and there’s a lot more time spent with the Avengers together, after being so separated in the first one. We’ve got some great new goodies, and some good baddies.”
There’s also been talk that Hawkeye could reunite with Chris Evans »

As if you needed another reason to head to theaters to see Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, we have reports that the first Avengers: Age of Ultron teaser trailer will play ahead of it in theaters. If you are Russian, you will definitely get to see the Avengers teaser, as Warner Bros. Russia has announced that it will be attached to the space odyssey in that country. It makes sense for that to be true here in the States as well, given that Interstellar’s November 7 (U.S.) release date puts it almost exactly six months ahead of Age of Ultron’s May 1, 2015 (also U.S.) release date. That’s about when the Marvel PR machine starts rolling things out. They also usually put their trailers online a few days before theatrical release, so come back at the end of October/beginning of November to watch it here.

More often than not, best picture winners at the Academy Awards tend to fall into the same genre category: biopic, period piece or drama. “Genre films” have managed to break through and secure nominations for various other categories, such as acting, but they have a more difficult time landing a spot on the best picture nomination list. Since the 83rd Academy Awards, films such as Toy Story 3 (2010), an animated film; Django Unchained (2012), a western; and Gravity (2013), a thriller, all managed to secure best picture nominations, but none became best picture winners. Examining the films that currently stand as frontrunners or major threats in the Oscar race shows a normal pattern emerging, with a few films that may offer up some surprises.
As per usual, biographical films have been dominating the festival circuit, and many of them have been garnering Oscar buzz. Among the top contenders are The Imitation Game, »

"...when 'Tony Stark' tries to jump start a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including 'Iron Man', 'Captain America', 'Thor', 'The Incredible Hulk', 'Black Widow' and 'Hawkeye', are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance.
"As the villainous 'Ultron' emerges, it is up to 'The Avengers' to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

Emma Watson and Daniel Brühl are heading to "Colonia." Florian Gallenberger is directing a drama telling the story of Lena and Daniel, a young couple who become entangled in the Chilean military coup of 1973. Daniel is abducted by dictator Augusto Pinochet’s secret police and Lena tracks him to a sealed off area in the South of the country, called Colonia Dignidad. The Colonia presents itself as a charitable mission run by lay preacher Paul Schäfer but, in fact, is a impenetrable prison. Lena decides to join the cult in order to find Daniel. The film is inspired by a true story and sounds pretty damn promising. Cameras are now rolling with production to continue until the end of the year. "Mad Men" star John Slattery is joining Billy Crudup, Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo and Rachel McAdams in Tom McCarthy's "Spotlight." The movie will tell the true story of »

Rumour has is that Robert Downey Jr. will say goodbye to the character of Tony Stark after just two more movies, the first of which is next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, followed by a third Avengers film expected in 2017/2018. Many cannot imagine anyone else taking over the iconic role. However, President of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige has suggested that the role will eventually be recast and this will be a continual process as seen with long-standing franchies such as James Bond and Doctor Who. But Kevin Feige has also expressed the possibility of introducing new Avengers and phasing old ones out, giving characters a definitive ending and avoiding the need to recast.
Despite his immense popularity as Tony Stark, Robert Downey Jr. recently stated in an interview that as an actor playing a character, »

A new rumor claims that The Avengers 3 is going to do what quite a few franchise sequels have pulled in the recent past. It will be split into a two-part movie.
This is a trend that started with the Twilight Saga, as the final book in the series was split into The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2. Harry Potter followed suit with The Deathly Hallows, and it has continued through such franchises as The Hobbit, originally planned as a two film prequel but turned into a three part epic, and Divergent. Anything to squeeze a little extra money out of a franchise.
Splitting The Avengers 3 into two parts is an interesting conceit, since its not based on a novel series, though it could be based on an expansive, existing storyline in the comics. And a good cliffhanger never hurt ticket sales. »

After successful screenings at Telluride and Toronto and a Cannes Best Director award for Bennett Miller, this much is certain: “Foxcatcher” is a bona fide Oscar contender. With its three strong performances from Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo, economical direction from Miller, and tightly written script from E. Max Frye and Dan Futterman, this true-crime saga about eccentric billionaire-turned-murderer John du Pont’s (Carell) obsession with an Olympic gold-medalist wrestler (Tatum) and his brother (Ruffalo) should receive multiple nominations, including Picture, Director, and Screenplay. -Break- Both of Millers previous films – “Capote” (2005) and “Moneyball” (2011) – contended for Best Picture, and “Capote” won a Best Actor prize for Philip Seymour Hoffman. Brad Pitt received a nod for “Moneyball” as well, so if there’s one thing Miller’s good at, i »
